June O. Shott Field at Concord University

The newly re-turfed field at June O. Shott field at Concord University will be re-dedicated at Noon on Saturday, right before the game at 2 p.m.

ATHENS — Concord University will celebrate upgrades to the June O. Shott Field prior to Saturday’s first home football game on the newly-turfed artificial surface. Alumni, fans, and friends of Concord are invited to join the celebration.

Beginning at noon, the Advancement Office will host a tailgate serving free food and beverages while they last. Before kickoff at 2 p.m., the “Voice of the Mountain Lions, Mr. Tom Bone, will recognize the donors who supported the field restoration project. Those in attendance will join President Kendra Boggess on the field for the coin toss.

Crews removed and replaced the 80,000 square-feet turf early this summer, a project that cost approximately $350,000.

Contributions from the Hugh I. Shott Foundation along with additional donations from the late Thomas Wilson and late Charles LaRue, both Concord alumni, funded the re-turfing project.
